I, Richard Waterman, hereby declare as follows:1.
 
I am an Adjunct Professor of Statistics at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and the President and Co-Founder of Analytic Business Services, Inc., aconsultancy focused on providing expert advice and opinions in the field of statistical analysis. Ihave been retained by the plaintiffs Disney Enterprises, Inc., Twentieth Century Fox FilmCorporation, Universal City Studios Productions LLLP, Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc., andWarner Bros. Entertainment Inc. (“plaintiffs”) to conduct an analysis and provide myconclusions regarding the level of infringing activity on www.hotfile.com (“Hotfile”). Thestatements made in this declaration are based on my personal knowledge or application of myspecialized knowledge to facts or data of which I am aware. If called to testify, I would testifybased on the best of my knowledge, information, and belief, as follows:2.
 
I received my Ph.D. in Statistics from the Pennsylvania State University in 1993.I have substantial experience designing and reviewing sampling protocols for various largeorganizations, such as the United States Postal Service, for whom I designed and analyzed anational multi-stage sample for the estimation of operational characteristics. I have designedsampling protocols involving various filesharing technologies, specifically BitTorrent, Gnutellaand Usenet, as further explained below. I also have substantial experience in designing samplingprotocols in the private sector, and have developed market research studies for numerous largecorporate clients, which typically involve issues related to sampling. Further details of myprofessional history, including a list of publications I have authored during the last ten years, canbe found on the resume attached as Exhibit A. Within the last four years, I have testified as anexpert at trial or deposition in the following cases, as further outlined in Exhibit B:

States District Court of Colorado. I am being compensated for my services in this case at a rateof $450/hour ($550/hour for testimony).3.
 
I was asked by the plaintiffs to create a protocol for drawing a statistically reliablesample for a study analyzing the percentage of files downloaded daily that were identified asinfringing from the website operated by the defendants, www.hotfile.com (“Hotfile”). Toconduct that study, I designed a statistically valid sampling protocol that drew a sample of 1,750files from Hotfile for further analysis to determine whether they were infringing. Based on theclassifications of those files, which was done by Scott A. Zebrak, I was able to calculate the levelof infringing daily download activity on Hotfile.4.
 
In its general design, this study was similar to other statistical studies that I havedesigned and implemented to measure the level of infringing activity on online services. Idesigned these studies in connection with the following cases:
 Arista Records LLC, et al. v. Lime Group LLC, et al.
No. 06-Civ. 05936 (S.D.N.Y) (“
 Limewire
”);
Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc. et al. v. Gary Fung
, No. 06-CV-5578 (C.D. Cal.) (“

”); and
 Arista Records LLC v. Usenet.com, Inc.
, No. 07 Civ. 8822 (S.D.N.Y.) (“
Usenet.com
”). In each case, I designeda protocol to select a sample of content files available on and/or downloaded from differentonline networks via services offered by the defendants in those cases (respectively, Limewire,
